Untimely death is the most difficult tragedy a family ever faces.
The tragedy is worse when the death is caused by someone else’s negligent actions. Georgia law requires the negligent party to pay the surviving family the full value of the victim’s life. A wrongful death lawyer will help the victim’s family find justice, and will hold the negligent party accountable.
A wrongful death can be caused by a number of tragic events, such as a car accident, medical malpractice, a defective product, a dangerous drug, and a serious accident. No amount of money can truly represent the value of a family member’s life. So, the amount of compensation is usually determined by looking at the person’s missed experiences, what they would have enjoyed, how much money they would have made, and the positive impact they had in the world. Also, the family can be compensated for the costs of the funeral, medical bills, and for the pain and suffering their family member went through.
